Lori 228 X 180 cm (LO101)
Size: 228 X 180 cm
Lori of Iran
Lori tribes are among the oldest inhabitant of Persia. The Lors, like the Kurds, are
one of the few surviving tribal groups who have lived in the same land since the
earliest periods of Persian history. It is believed, however, that the Lors originated
in Central Asia and migrated to Western Persia around 2000 BC, inhabiting the
area we know today as Lorestan.
According to V. Minorsky, the Lors spilt into the Greater Lor and the Lesser Lor
during the Mongol period. Since that time, the region of the Lesser Lor has been
known as Lorestan. The Greater Lor further sub-divided into Bakhtiar and the
kohgiluyeh at the beginning of the Safavid era. A considerable number of Lor have
been absorbed into the Qashquai Confederacy particularly into Kashkuli,
Darrehshuri and Amaleh taifeh.
This one is woven with good quality wool and is hard wearing as well as being decorative
and beautiful. The design is very interesting and is a very primitive way of showing the tree
of life pattern.
